Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

A nice entry level Ponzi. Aromas of dark berry fruits with hints of sweet spice and oaky notes. On the palate blueberry and cherry flavors with cacao and cola tones. Fine delicate tannins, good balance, lingering ending with light spice. Nice.

Clearly a nice wine but too heavy in taste and alcohol for me

Wow! Perfume very intense floral. I actually thought that somebody with perfume was walking by but it was the wine. Strawberry cherry, hint of rhubarb. Perfectly balanced. Wish I had a case of this.

An enjoyable, well priced Pinot. A good nose with dark fruit flavor and spice, plus a wonderful effervescent texture. Would be great for entertaining.
